We’re celebrating this month’s release of One + One: Scarves, Shawls & Shrugs, the first book of a new series that focuses on two-skein projects. Talking with us today is design contributor Judith Rudnick Kane.

Infinity Twist


How did you adapt your creative process to the two-skein limit? Did you enjoy working with a limit?

Adapting the creative process to the two-skein limitation allowed me to be creative and expressive at the same time. I love combining textures and colors that may seem unusual and be a bit unexpected.

How did you choose your yarn combination?

I chose the combination of Artyarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter Light (#1015) with Artyarns Ultramerino 4 (#297), because together they offer a balanced complement of texture and color.

Tell us about your cowl, the Infinity Twist.

The Infinity Twist Cowl was created using one of my color designs (#1015) for ArtYarns.

What is your approach to design? How would you define your design style?

I would have to say that my design style is a little quirky in that I approach designing in yarn the same way as I approach my paintings. I combine color and texture – and I am never sure how it will come out until it is completed.

I loved working on this design for [author Iris Schreier's] book, and I look forward to her next book, which will have one of my hooded scarf designs.
